The 'Good Morning America' host Robin Roberts delivered a touching speech as she received the night's prestigious Arthur Ashe Courage Award at the ESPYs on Wednesday.

Roberts, who began her career at ESPN, announced that she's winning her fight with MDS or Myelodysplastic syndrome, which required a bone marrow transplant.

"There are many worthy of holding this honor, others who have exhibited far more courage, strength and resilience, and it's humbling for me to represent you tonight," Roberts said.

"I draw strength from you. You give me the courage to face down any challenge, to know when fear knocks, to let faith answer the door."

In 2007, Roberts was diagnosed with breast cancer and in 2012, she was diagnosed with myelodysplastic syndrome, a side effect from her cancer treatment.
